Atlantic String Machine

Atlantic String Machine was formed in April 2015 and is based on Prince Edward Island. The group is made up of five musicians with considerable professional experience in a number of musical genres, having performed worldwide with the internationally recognized symphony and chamber orchestras, ensembles, bands and individual artists. They have recently joined together to present a wide range of music from classical to jazz, pop, world music and their own compositions.

Since their inception, the Atlantic String Machine have performed numerous concerts including sold-out houses at the Watermark Theatre in Rustico, Harrington House in Rice Point and the Haviland Club in Charlottetown. The first year’s feature performances included collaborations with well-known Newfoundland jazz guitarist Duane Andrews, Charlottetown’s dynamic vocal ensemble Sirens and clarinettist Dr. Karem Simon, as part of the UPEI Recital Series. Since then, ASM has produced its own concert series in both 2015-16 and 2016-17, has collaborated with several Island musicians, including Paper Lions, Nathan Wiley, and Kelley Mooney, and has performed concerts with Atlantic musicians such as The Once and Matthew Byrne in the Indian River Festival and the PEI Mutual Festival of Small Halls. The 2016-17 ‘Passport Series’ of concerts has featured the music of Russia, France, Italy and the United Kingdom, and the group looks forward to another summer of exciting collaborations with new artists
